Read the first few pages of the IC.

Thus far, the typical route has been adoption by a village, and then the slow ( stretch this out for taste and story development ) rise through social ranks until we reach a position were in we exercise direct control and influence over a polity. From there, our will just naturally starts taking the shape of a civilization.

Viktor become a judge for his city after about two years.

Luther became a predatory merchant lording interests over city states after about five years.

Andrew become a great general married a princess of Aksum after about five years.

Clara convinced the danish tribes to poole resources after about four years.

Issac became a general and couped his village after nine years.

Patrick became a hero and made peace between the tribes of Ireland.

Victor is into yoga

Soto invented communism

We all have different ways of getting there.

Edit: Could you maybe tell me what you intend on creating? I could tell you about what some people did to get there.

As in nation wise? I'm still on the ropes about that

I suppose a sort of Roman Empire inspired system, with a Supreme Leader at its head with a large amount of power, but also a Senate below it that people can aspire to join which would help manage the civilisation

I'm also on the ropes of basing myself either in Italy or Spain

Well, we should probably agree, at least between us, what standard we agree on - I think you think similarly to me, and we should put something together for the RP in general.

Joohan’s Icedonia, maybe, might count as something similar to an ancient Near East empire.

Not in the least - those are what the taxes on industry and trade tariffs are for, largely drawn from the vast wealth House Nemtsov has accumulated producing, yknow, most sophisticated economic goods in central Europe. From paper, to timber, to bronze, to tools, to leather, to ships, to textiles (glorious glorious textiles) and so on - if it came from Viktor's mind and methods, House Nemtsov usually has a large stake in it, if not a virtual monopoly. Most of the taxes within the Imperium itself are really just Viktor moving his private fortune into the state's public fortune, and establishing good principles for long term economic growth.

It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that one of the main reasons Viktor remains at the head of the Imperium's political structure is because her militaries march on stomaches filled by his enterprises. He started out as a guard captain who funded a half dozen militiamen to patrol a city's trade routes by arming them at his own expense (and sweat) and getting the local nobles to pay a nominal fee for their services, and his position as Hegemon has essentially just been a massive scaling up of that role.

Right so, in terms of an autocratic Roman Empire like civ, i would suggest Reading both My and G-Tech's posts.

Icedonia is the lawful Evil civ of this RP, essentially. A highly organized state, a large and effecient bureaucracy, the most disciplined military in the world, a burgeoning xenophobic nationalist philosophy, and an infamously genocidal take on war. It's inspirations are chiefly Imperial Japan and the Soviet Union

The Imperium of Man is the Lawful Neutral of this RP, essentially. A somewhat more decentralized state, the most advanced industry in the world, a large volunteer army, a belief in the divine mandate of Viktor's rule, and the most rapid growth of any civ in game. Inspirations chiefly, The Imperium of Man 40k, the HRE.

Although, as the sad cautionary tales of violent revolutions in our own RL history teaches us, revolutions are always best conducted from within the government... so maybe marrying into the royal family and becoming pub buddies with the king’s son (and, I assume, heir) with the idea of eventually forcing a republican government is maybe not such a bad way to go about it.

In a completely unrelated note, I’ve typed enough into this RP that my autocorrect tries to automatically capitalise “republic” now... it learns... Skynet’s Judgement Day is coming soon.

So the profits of industry, in an agrarian society, largely limited to the core regions because Viktor has so far proved reluctant to send key technologies out of his direct control.

Supplemented with tariffs on commerce... again, in an agrarian society. And who pays these tariffs? The impoverished masses of your less developed outer provinces, who won’t exactly be creating a vibrant market for consumer goods? Again, that boils down to the wealth of your core region - and since merchants need to make a vibrant profit to stay in the business, those tariffs can’t be too high either.

Seems to still boil down to the wealth of your core regions.

“It is difficult for me to imagine what “personal liberty” is enjoyed by an unemployed hungry person. True freedom can only be where there is no exploitation and oppression of one person by another; where there is not unemployment, and where a person is not living in fear of losing his job, his home and his bread. Only in such a society personal and any other freedom can exist for real and not on paper.” -J. V. STALIN

Well, less Pub Buddies (though that will probably take more of a form later perhaps) and more like an older brother and mentor. Andrew and the Crown Prince are like, 12 years apart. Considering Andrew converted the Prince to Christianity, to say he has influence would be an understatement. Rn Andrew isn’t going with the direct goal of forming a Republic, but he is taking Republican ideas, and he’ll gradually be pushed to full Republic.

Both actually. Your nearest neighbor is in Malaysia. We've had authors land there before, but no one has ever persisted. You would be far enough from Europe and the Near East so as not to be stomped by any established Civ's and you would have a practically unlimited amount of resources. China is a fantastic option!
